Museum Gardens From Home
Sow seeds this spring and take part in a project to create a colourful community flower display in York Museum Gardens planned for this summer. We’re encouraging people to plant any flower seeds they have and to share their experiences, tips and results through social media, creating an online citizen gardening project. The ambition is for people to then bring their blooms to York Museum Gardens for a community display, once they have reopened for the public later this year.
